Idiot du Jour

And a Congressman, no less:

“The Constitution of the United States, and the First Amendment says ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Nor will they abridge the freedom of speech, of the press’. I’ve got a copy of the Constitution I want to give you — at the end of this hearing.” – South Carolina GOP Rep. Jeff Duncan, accusing Mark Zuckerberg of violating Christians’ freedom of speech on Facebook and once again demonstrating that many right wingers are utterly incapable of comprehending the very document they literally, in this case, are waving in your face.

OK, it's ignorance. The stupidity comes in from not realizing the dept of his ignorance and proudly trotting it out in a Congressional hearing.

Via Joe.My.God.
